Crowd LAUGHS at Trump for Susan B. Anthony pardon

Tell the media to call Trump out on his dishonest smear of Michelle Obama!

He has said nothing about the damage already done, and this does not mean we are out of the woods — at all. But it means the pressure is working, your voices are being heard, our actions are making a difference. So keep it up!

Today’s Action: Tune into the DNC, Day 3 – and phone bank for Democrats!

Have you tuned in yet? The 2020 Democratic National Convention is one for the books – Democrats have adapted to the pandemic and we’re online! Wednesday is Day 3 of 4.

The convention isn’t just where our party nominates our presidential candidate – it’s also where Democratic leaders gather to debate and formalize party and caucus platforms for the coming term. No better time to tune in and help prepare for a post-Trump world!

Wednesday’s agenda includes (times in EST):

  • Labor Council Meeting, 1 – 3 pm
  • Asian American and Pacific Islander Caucus Meeting 1 – 3 pm
  • Interfaith Council Meeting, 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm
  • Ethnic Council Meeting, 3 – 4 pm

  • All of the ways to tune in…

And while you’re observing our leaders discuss solutions to the biggest problems facing this country, or getting pumped up by inspiring speakers who remind us why we’re in this fight, why not put that energy to use by taking action during the convention?

Phone bank during the convention!

A sweeping victory in the White House and Congress is within our grasp…but only if we all chip in.

Phone banking with swing state voters is now our single greatest asset for defeating Trump and flipping the Senate. You don’t need to be a political expert to make these calls. You just need to care about defeating Trump and breaking the majority in the Senate that obeys his every whim – and every single call you make brings us one step closer to that vision of the future.

Phone bank for the Democratic Party or with the good folks of Indivisible during the convention this week, and usher in sweeping change this November – shifts happening every day!
